In a terrifying turn of events, our nation’s Capitol, the pulse of our nation has turned into a war zone. Once a city that was a promise of freedom and a republic now looks like a scene from a dystopian movie. Military vehicles line the streets, checkpoints, National Guard, and barricades now take the place of families visiting from Wisconsin to see the sights.
On top of that, the National Guard has also been given the authority to use lethal force. Bridges from Virginia to D.C. have been shut down and areas in the city have been deemed as Green and Red zones.
The question on many people’s minds at this time, is what is going on here? Is this all for Biden’s inauguration or is something much more sinister afoot?
Here is more from The Gateway Pundit:
Armed troops authorized to use lethal force are manning checkpoints to enter and leave downtown Washington, D.C. Green Zone and Red Zone perimeters have been established. Several bridges into the city from neighboring Virginia are scheduled to be closed next week for the inaugural.
Sean Spicer, President Trump’s first press secretary and current Newsmax TV host, posted video apparently taken Friday night that shows a military checkpoint to leave D.C. near the Lincoln Memorial. The video also shows cars on 16th Street near K Street parked in rows blockading the roadway. But first, a scene-setter report by Spicer’s Newsmax co-host Lyndsay Keith from 16th and K in the daytime.

The Secret Service posted a detailed list on Thursday of the streets blockaded by military checkpoints and divided into a Green Zone and Red Zone.
“Green Zone – Vehicle Restricted Zone Vehicle traffic restricted to residents or businesses within the restricted area and National Guard Personnel will be assisting with verifying traffic entering into the Green Zone.”
“Red Zone – Street Closures Vehicle traffic restricted to authorized vehicles only with proper vehicle placard.”
Extra checks are in place for those flying to D.C., “Extra security for flights coming into DC: I boarded a flight from LGA to DC a moment ago. At the gate, a TSA agent checked (again) all passenger IDs against boarding passes. Homeland Security officer w/ a dog was standing beside the door and said, Yes, this is for inauguration.”
